Two Residencies

by Ellen Mueller on November 23, 2015, no comments

Coast Time Residency

Good news! I recently found out I have been selected for two residencies in 2016. The first, in May, is Coast Time.

Coast Time is located on the Oregon coast in Lincoln County. While residing at Coast Time, there are no expectations of the kind of work you will make, or even if you ultimately make any work at all. They want to provide you with the time and space to think, assess, process, and create. Coast Time is anxious to welcome artists and writers from around the country and globe into the Oregon art hub. Residents will be offered opportunities to meet, critique, and dine with artists, writers and art professionals from Portland and Eugene.

Signal Culture Residency

The second, in August, is Signal Culture.

Signal Culture offers residencies in a live/work space in the beautiful village of Owego in central New York State. Their vision is to create an environment where innovative artists, toolmakers, curators, critics, researchers and historians who are contributing to the field of media art will have time and space to make new work and to interact with one another.

“Art in America” in Miami

by Ellen Mueller on November 19, 2015, no comments

I’ll be representing West Virginia with one of my drawings from the Erma Series for ART IN AMERICA Miami Artist-Run at the Satellite Show. Sponsored by Tiger Strikes Asteroid, curated by Julie Torres.

Stop by if you’ll be in Miami for Art Basel!

Artist-Run focuses on the artist-run space, a thriving alternate model of support, exchange, and community to the established commercial market. From collectives with permanent spaces to one-person pop-up curatorial nomads, Tiger Strikes Asteroid will bring together an international representation of nearly 40 of these initiatives in a repurposed hotel. Each room will feature a different installation/environment by one of these groups.

Artist-Run is already getting some attention in Paper Mag.

My new series of videos, “Collecting Rectangles.” will be on view at Chrysalis Lens: A Brief Survey of Contemporary Video Art, which takes place a the Klaus Center for the Arts at Marymount California University.

Chrysalis Lens: A Brief Survey of Contemporary Video Art

Reception: Thursday, November 5, 2015 – 6:30pm to 9:00pm (Free)
Klaus Center for the Arts
430 W. Sixth Street

This exhibition explores the ever-metamorphosing state of video art. Tracing back to the genesis of video art during the late 1960s and early 1970s, the videos selected for the exhibition serve as a survey of contemporary video art created in order to view the current state of video art since prominent artists such as Nam June Paik, Valie Export, Doris Totten Chase, Bill Viola, Maureen Connor, and Vito Acconci first pioneered the art form.
